A dismal final game of the season for Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady wound up costing him some money.

Brady has been fined $16,444 for unnecessary roughness for a sliding attempt to trip Cowboys safety Malik Hooker during last Monday’s 31-14 Cowboys win.

Hooker was returning a fumble by Bucs wideout Chris Godwin when Brady slid at him from behind in an attempt to trip Hooker up. Hooker wound up being tackled at around the same point.

Brady was also fined for kicking at Falcons defensive tackle Grady Jarrett during the regular season.

Buccaneers center Ryan Jense was penalized for unnecessary roughness on the same play. He was fined $8,333.33 for that infraction.

    They must endorse this type of thing in Boston – witness Mac Jones shenanigans.

    It comes from the top.

  2. The left tackle for Jacksonville just got flagged for tripping, will he get the same fine as Brady for “attempting to trip”

    This is an example of Roger Goodell’s insane jealousy of the Patriots.

    In case you didn’t notice Tom Brady plays for Tampa Bay.

  4. The fine is what makes this a headline, not the fact that Brady has repeatedly attempted to kick and trip opponents over the years. And I got no beef with Brady other than that crap. Fine him every time.

  5. Sort of puts the bogus Deflategate into perspective. Fined a million for something the NFL never proved and even if they did, Aaron Rodgers said that everyone cheats at the PSI inflation of footballs. Intentionally tripping is worse than that yet the fine is only 1% that of Deflategate. What a joke.

  6. Biggest coward there is. He knows the opponents are under strict orders by his dad Goodell to not hit him, yet he is allowed to cheap shot players on a regular basis with no worries about any repercussions. It’s an absolute joke that this sham artist is even allowed in the league.

    The only “sham” is crazy conspiracy theory people are allowed on the internet

  9. He’s on vacation now……he’ll hate that bill in the mail when he gets home.

  10. NFL fined Joey Bosa $55K for talking and Tom Brady $16K for tripping. That shows what they feel is more important to stop.

  11. Tom Brady is NOTHING without elite coaching. Proved it this season and now has a losing record without that elite coaching. Belichick and Arians made Tommy. Could never elevate a team. He’s simply not that good.

    Truth hurts.
